Obama/Clinton "M-1Gun Ban" Furor continues; Inquiries given the runaround

Obama Administration Reverses Course, Forbids Sale of 850,000 Antique Rifles - The Obama administration approved the sale of the American-made rifles last year. But it reversed course and banned the sale in March – a decision that went largely unnoticed at the time but that is now sparking opposition from gun rights advocates..."Any guns that retail in the United States, of course, including these, can only be sold to someone who passes the National Instant Check System," said David Kopel, research director at the conservative Independence Institute. "There is no greater risk from these particular guns than there is from any other guns sold in the United States."...(Chris Cox) called the administration's decision "a de facto gun ban, courtesy of Hillary Clinton's State Department"...Kopel said that he hopes the State Department spokesman's statement that it is working to "dispose" of the guns does not mean they want to melt them down."It seems to have this implication of destruction, which would be tremendously wasteful," he said. "These are guns that should be in the hands of American citizens for marksmanship and safety training"...The White House referred questions on the issue to the Pentagon, which referred questions to the U.S. Embassy in South Korea, which deferred back to the State Department..."M1s are used for target practice. For history buffs, they're highly collectible. We're going to continue to make sure that this backdoor effort that infringes not only on lawful commerce but on the Second Amendment is rectified"...----Full story @ Fox News----
As I said in an earlier report on this fiasco:  "One more nail in the coffin of the anti-gun media's web of lies that the current resident of the White House is not actively anti-gun. These surplus semi-automatic G.I. firearms are invaluable and have a negligible history of criminal misuse. The reasons given for blocking importation are not only weak and illogical, they are downright stupid. More abuse of power by the current administration"...I might add that with the current budget situation, why would they turn down the vast amount of money the sale of these to the U.S.  public would generate?.  Blind hatred of Gun Owners and simpering submission to the Gun-Ban Utopian Bloc seem to be the only conclusions available...(S9)
